Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may cause injury or further malfunctioning of the appliance. • Do not use any sharp or pointed utensils or electrical equipment - other than the type recommended by the manufacturer - inside the frozen food storage compartments. • Do not put ice cubes taken directly from the freezer into your mouth. • This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or lack of experience and knowledge unless they have been given Supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Children should be Supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance. • Keep packaging material out of the reach of children! It can become a choking or suffocation hazard. Disposal • Observe local environmental standards when disposing packaging material for recycling purposes. • The European Directive 2012/19/EU on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), requires that old household electrical appliances must not be disposed of in the normal unsorted municipal waste stream. Old appliances must be collected separately in order to optimise the recovery and recycling of the materials they contain and reduce the impact on human health and the environment. The crossed out “wheeled bin” symbol on the product reminds you of your obligation, that when you dispose of the appliance it must be separately collected. Consumers should contact their local authority or retailer for information concerning the correct disposal of their old appliance. Respecting and conserving the environment • Install the appliance in a fresh and well-ventilated room. Ensure that it is protected from direct sunlight and do not place it near heat sources. • Try to avoid keeping the door open for long periods or opening the door too frequently in order to conserve energy. • Do not fill the appliance with too much food: cold air must circulate freely for food to be preserved properly. If circulation is impeded, the compressor will work continuously. • Do not place hot food directly into the refrigerator. The internal temperature will increase and force the compressor to work harder and will consume more energy. • Defrost the appliance if ice forms (see Maintenance). A thick layer of ice makes cold transference to food products more difficult and results in increased energy consumption. Troubleshooting If the appliance does not work, before calling for Assistance (see Assistance), check for a solution from the following list. The interface is off. • The plug is not inserted in the outlet, or it is not powerful enough to create a contact, or there is no electricity in the house.
